Lowari Tunnel to open on daily basis without any wastage of
Dear Editor Chitral Times,
Lowari Tunnel was open for only 3 days a week in the past times
1. To allow the people to use the tunnel by vehicles as the Lowari
top was covered and closed by the snow.
2. Not to suffer the work of the Contractor.
I have the opinion to keep open the tunnel for public traffic on
daily basis and I am sure that with the daily opening of the tunnel
the work of the Contractor will not suffer because of;
With the alternate day opening of the tunnel was causing a large
number of vehicles to pass from either side and causing consuming
of more time and making more pollution inside the tunnel which was
causing the late starting of the work by the Contractor.
Alternate day opening;
For example 300 vehicles
For example passing the tunnel time is 100 minutes
For example due to pollution of 300 vehicles work delayed even
passing of vehicles is finished 100 minutes
For example WASTAGE of time per DAY is 200 minutes
For example WASTAGE of time per MONTH is 3000 minutes equal to 50
Surely 15 (half of 300) vehicles
Surely Passing the tunnel time will be 40% of the 300 vehicles is
Surely due to pollution of 150 vehicles work delayed even passing
of vehicles is finished will be 40% is 40 minutes
Surely WASTAGE of time per DAY is 80 minutes
Surely WASTAGE of time per MONTH is 2400 minutes equal to 40 HOURS
I PERSONALLY CAN MANAGE AND CAN PROVE THAT TIME OF THE CONTRACTOR
WILL NOT BE WASTED EVEN THE TUNNEL IS OPEN ON DAILY BASIS.
